GTN750 Integration WIP

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to fly a LPV approach with the GTN, but it will not capture the GS. 3 times I have tried. What has to be set up in order to capture the GS. I know I have done it my CJ2 with the GTN. I just can't get with this plane... I know its operator error....lol

What has worked for me is the A/P must be in NAV flying the flight plan, the approach is activated on the GTN and the aircraft is on the approach, the GTN must transition to LPV usually at the FAF, the glide slope cue appears on the pdf, and I select APP on the mode control panel as the glide slope cue begins to sink. It sounds like a lot of steps but they all flow sequentially so long as the A/P is in NAV and flying the approach. You should also be sure to look at the approach plate to be sure you cross the IAF and FAF at the correct altitudes.

HI Ramon,

I have done a couple of flights and the mod has functioned perfectly. Thanks so much for the time and effort you put into this for all of us. Now, I don't have to leave it in the hanger or request a refund!

My apologies for taking so long to thank you for the mod and report my results. Great work, it's far more user friendly than than the included Proline 21. Flown a few times with the Carenado 1.2 U/G and all is well. TX again.

Installed the mod thanks. Looks great.

But, I couldn’t get it to follow GPS NAV course. (Selected GPS on GTN.) 

Converted to RXP. Still wouldn’t follow  UNTIL I added a RXP pop up gauge. On this GTN the NAV works - but this guage seems to have no link to the two GTNs in the panel???

I'm using the F1 GTN750 Complete

I don't have the RXP750 touch, but I believe You have to change a couple of values in the RXP config file.
(I read something about that over at the RXP Forum, but can't remember where, Sorry )

Perhaps someone here using the RXP can chime in and help Us. (So I can add it to the MOD Readme.

Hi!

This was quoted in the RXP forum:

¨Make sure that your RealityXP.GTN.ini file calls for the GPS to drive HSI and Autopilot and the CDI mode to drive NAV/GPS. Hope this be useful.¨

Also both CDI keys in the GTN and in the PDF must be set to ¨GPS¨

 

Best Regards,

Roberto

Sorry for delay responding. The mod works great with the RXP GTN750. 

Made a Carenado aircraft beautiful and functional!  Thanks.

Thanks for sending the link.  Easy install and it works great.  I appreciate your hard work.

What other planes have you modified for the GTN?

Thanks again, Paul

Hi all:

I'm wondering if something went right by me. 🙂 Does the latest GTN 750 have capability to control altitude on arrivals and departures as it does on RNAV LPV approaches? Seems like I saw this somewhere on the web.

Thanks in advance

Rick

Hi Ramon,

Can we expect any more updates to your GTN 750 mod?

Thanks

YES; I´m working on a mayor MOD for this aircraft.

It will include:

Done:

  • Fixes to flawed code.
  • Fuel Loading and Unloading at the Parking Spot.
  • Working Fuel Transfer between tanks 1-2-3.
  • ICE warning. (Flunky, but works)
  • More FMS CAS and Status Messages.
  • Automatic Pressurization / Despressurization including TO and LAND in High Altitude Airports. (I'm very proud of this one)
  • More Info Pages.

Currently working on:

  • Keyboard and Keypad Scratchpad entries for several data fields.

Need to do:

  • Fixes to the AP VS and FLC trim system when it cannot sustain speed.
    ( Plane Pitches up almost vertically while losing speed until it drops like a rock)
  • More fixes to flawed code.

Probably will do:

  • Fixes to the APU, EXT PWR, Bleed Air.
  • Electrical Amp and Voltage Load Improvements.
  • VNAV - If Flight1 ever gives us access to some needed vars from the GTN.

Plus whatever else I can think of and can do.

Please note that I'm no aviation expert, so I'm learning about this airplane as I code.
I don't have an AFM/POH to work with, therefore some systems are approximations and coded the way I believe they should work. I have other Falcon models specs/manuals that have helped a lot.

Cheers.
